Wield a Legendary Blade with New Paragon Hero

Steve Superville's Avatar Posted by Creative Director

Hey, PlayStation Nation. We’d like to introduce you to the latest Hero for our MOBA Paragon. We call this sword-wielding fighter… Kwang. You’ll be able to play Kwang starting Tuesday, October 4. Get your first look at Kwang below.

Kwang is a durable fighter that excels at initiating. A master swordsman, Kwang can utilize his Legendary Blade to change how and where he uses his abilities.

  • Light of the Heavens — Beams of light strike Kwang’s sword, dealing AoE damage around it and giving him Physical and Energy Armor.
  • Judgement of the Heavens — Kwang throws his sword to the heavens. When it lands, it deals damage and tethers enemies to it. The sword remains planted in the ground forever, until retriggered or the next basic attack.
  • Gift of the Heavens — Passive: Kwang’s sword bursts with light, creating an aura around it that grants lifesteal to both Kwang and allies around him.
  • Fury of the Heavens — Kwang spins his blade around him in an AoE, damaging and slowing enemies. If his sword has been thrown and is out in the world he will teleport to it before attacking.

As always, all Heroes in Paragon are free, so jump in as Kwang on Tuesday. If you can’t wait to get your Paragon fix, you don’t have to — Paragon is in free open beta, so you can download and play today.

See you on the battlefield!

Good luck, have fun.

“The sword remains planted in the ground forever, until retriggered or the next basic attack.” Whaaaa? Ok, so is this April 1st or Christmas? Are you saying I could tether someone to my sword and then recall, upgrade cards/heal/etc…, then ult back to my sword anywhere on the map? Either I’m reading this wrong, you guys are pulling my leg, or I just died and went to heaven… ^_^

    I’m nearly certain the tether will be timed like anything else, whether you activate the sword or not. That’d be insane if that wasn’t the case.
